Warm and densely cabled, Oakley by co-founder Sloane Rosenthal is a modern, graphic hat for everyone. Luxuriate in the opulent double-brim slouch in the coldest climes, or keep things a little trimmer in the understated beanie option. Engaging to knit and dramatic to wear, Oakley is hat you’ll treasure for winters to come.
